Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Joe cool
Joe Johnson has the reputation of being an isolation player. That is just what he has always done. You give him the ball and he scores. It is not always efficient and it is not always pretty. His trade to Brooklyn has been a mixed bag so far. He has not quite delivered or meshed with his new team.
Sometimes though, the player they call "Iso Joe" is on full display and shows just how great he can be. And those scenarios usually come when he does what he does best. Clear the floor, let him stare down the defender and score.
The Bucks learned that twice in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Nets at Barclays Center. Joe Johnson tied the game with a second and a half remaining with a 3-pointer. He then won the game at the buzzer, beating Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and draining a free throw line jumper as Mbah a Moute guess wrong which direction Johnson would...
BEST OF MAXIM
KNOCKING EM DOWN
Tonight, the NBA team that you have to feel sorry for is the Milwaukee Bucks as they fell to the Brooklyn Nets because of Nets guard Joe Johnson.The Bucks held a three-point lead with 6.7 seconds left in regulation and Brooklyn looked for Joe to the tie the score and guess what...he did:The score was knotted at 111 in overtime and the Nets gave Johnson the ball again to win the game...
Joe Johnson put on a show Tuesday night as his Brooklyn Nets hosted the Milwaukee Bucks, hitting two clutch shots when his teamed need them most.
With the Nets down 105-102 late in the fourth, Johnson spotted up at the top of the key and nailed a deep three-pointer with one second left to send the game into overtime.
Then, Johnson did it again. With just over four seconds left and...
Joe Johnson has become the Nets go-to guy down the stretch, and he didn’t disappoint Tuesday night when Brooklyn hosted the Bucks at Barclays Center. Johnson drilled two clutch shots with ease – not only making a long 3 to send the game into overtime, but hitting a tough jumper in the final seconds to win the game, 113-111.
This is without a doubt, Joe Johnson's high moment with the Nets so far. He has been deemed a disappointment with the amount of money the Nets are paying for him. Brooklyn had high hopes to start the season and as James and I discussed on our weekly podcast, NBA Unplugged (airing tomorrow), the Nets are exactly where we thought they'd be at this stage. If they want to...
I think Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson has firmly put himself into the conversation of most clutch players in the league. Last night while facing the Milwaukee Bucks, the Nets found themselves down 3 with 6.7 seconds left. Check out the video courtesy of That NBA Lottery Pick, to see what Joe did next.
After sending the game into overtime, check out the finish as Joe Johnson...
Joe Johnson just hit a couple of late game shots for the Brooklyn Nets to tie the game in regulation and win it at the buzzer in an exciting 113-111 overtime win over the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night.
Not completely content to enjoy the thrilling victory on it's own merit, the optimistic Nets public relations crew pulled this ridiculous statistic from its computer and posted...
The 1st game after the All Star game break started for a bang for the Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson. The Milwaukee Bucks held a three point lead with 6.7 seconds in the game. Johnson went through a series of picks and nailed a three pointer off a Deron Williams pass.
Next it was Johnson turn to shine in overtime. The game was tied at 111 with 5 seconds. The Nets inbounds the ball to...
Tuesday night, the Brooklyn Nets won in overtime for the 5th time this season. In fact, as the Nets public relations department informed the world that Joe Johnson’s buzzer beater against the Bucks kept them undefeated in OT games this season. But that isn’t the stat the jumps off the page at ya. It was the next tweet they sent out that does STATS!!!!! That’s a crack staff...
CAN'T MAKE SENSE OF IT
Brooklyn Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo admits that he has been a "little bit befuddled" by all the criticism guard Deron Williams has been receiving this season.
Joe Johnson hit, not one, but two (basically) buzzer-beaters tonight to help the Nets finally beat the Bucks after 13 straight losses, one a three-pointer to tie up the game at the end of regulation and one a 15-footer to win it at the end of overtime
Deron Williams returned to the Nets lineup tonight, an occurrence that would normally be the biggest story...
The Brooklyn Nets public relations staff’s Twitter account knocked it out of the park with this dynamite nugget they dropped following the team’s 113-111 overtime win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday:
#Nets now 32-0 when outscoring opponent this season

I can only imagine the life and times of Pro Sports PR Guy (and/or Gal). Scoring that gig must have felt like such a coup right out of college when all your buddies were applying for barista internships and moving back into their parents’ house. But then days and weeks and months of researching and tweeting boring stat after trivial stat after useless stat goes by and it dawns...
Bucks 111 Nets 113 The return of Larry Sanders helped the Bucks (26-26) take the Brooklyn Nets (32-22) down to the wire, twice, last night. Unfortunately for Milwaukee, Joe Johnson decided to end both the regulation, and overtime with buzzer beaters to hand the Bucks a loss 113-111 in the first of a home and home two [...]
